Some people look for signs of spring in their yards, parks, or other places in nature. Flowers bloom, the grass greens up, and leaves begin to pop out of trees. Sports fans, however, look for baseball to return as their indicator Spring has sprung. It’s been a long offseason but baseball, and spring, are finally here. Players are excited and ready to compete in the sport they love.
However, one downside to that is that they have to leave their families for long periods of time. The season is long and cross-country road trips can keep baseball teams in hotel rooms instead of their hometowns for weeks at a time. That means long stretches without seeing their WAGs, or wives and girlfriends. In honor of those women we’ve put together a list of some of the WAGs of baseball’s biggest stars. Stick around for some bonus former MLB stars and their significant others.
Flip through the list and learn a bit about the women behind your favorite players.
Daniella Rodriguez (Carlos Correa)
About 5 minutes after Carlos Correa and the Houston Astros won a World Series title for a city ravaged by floods, the 23-year-old shortstop unleashed an encore performance. In the middle of his postgame interview, Correa dropped to his knees in front of millions of viewers and asked his girlfriend, Daniella Rodriguez, to marry him.
Rodriguez, the 2016 Miss Texas USA, looked understandably shocked and said, “Oh my God” repeatedly. Correa said he had been thinking about the engagement for a few months. “I talked to one of the clubhouse attendants in the ninth inning and I’m like, ‘I don’t want to jinx anything but if we get the three outs, please bring me the ring because I am going to get engaged in the ballpark,’” he said.
